Welcome to my castle!

I am your hostess, Stephanie Warner, and there are three things you should know about me right now: I’m a writer, editor, and teacher.

Writer: my current work in progress is an epic fantasy inspired by The Beauty and The Beast. I’ll keep you updated on its progress.

Editor & Teacher: I have many stories within me waiting to be realized, and I love helping others with theirs. For more on how I can help you, see my Editing and Young Authors pages.

Hmmm, what else about me?

  • I have a degree in Professional Writing from Taylor University, and I’ve spent a couple years teaching 5th – 12th grade everything from ancient humanities and Latin to writing and drama. I call teaching my boot camp for life.
  • I have been called a Brandon Sanderson evangelist – a title I claim proudly.
  • I love hand-writing letters – with the habit of decorating them with Disney Princess and VeggieTales stickers.
  • I think chai is a wonderful excuse to hang out with people. So is coffee.
  • The world is full of fandoms, and I love so many of them, but the one that started it all for me was The Lord of the Rings. (This is the part where I say, “One fandom to rule them all!”)

Stay around a while, and I’m sure we’ll get to know each other better.

Here, friend! Enjoy a virtual chai as you stroll through my castle.
